Judge who gave permission for boy to become a woman

Judge Linda Dessau - Gives Permission for Boy to Become a Woman

A schoolboy has been given approval to start changing into a woman – provided he has his sperm frozen in case he decides to ‘father’ children some time in the future.

The extraordinary and controversial case has emerged in Australia where a female judge in the Family Court has given the 16-year-old boy the go-ahead to start drug treatment in the first steps to his conversion into womanhood.
Judge Linda Dessau said the teenager, who is mildly autistic, was mature enough to know what he wanted – and he had the support of his parents, six specialists and a lawyer.
Sydney’s Daily Telegraph reported today (Wed) that the boy, identified only as ‘O’ comes from a loving family who ‘adore and respect him’.
He also had the support of his 14-year-old sister, in whose clothes he has been secretly dressing up in.
The judge said the boy was so desperate to become a girl that he had become suicidal and had once taken the extreme step of swallowing lead solder at his school.
Added to the unusual case was the judge’s observation that the boy’s father had also enjoyed dressing up as a girl but he had said that he ‘grew out of it’.
The parents of O thought he would also grow out of his obsession of dressing up as a girl but that did not happen.
When he was 14 he told his parents that he was revolted by his male body.
It is not the first time that an Australian court has created controversy by allowing a minor to start hormone treatment to change sex.
Six years ago the Family Court granted permission for a 13-year-old girl identified only as ‘Alex’ – who came from a troubled family – to start treatment to become a man.
Then last year Alex, by then aged 17, was given permission to have a double mastectomy.
